          Over the last 18 months many of us have transformed from consumers of Artificial Intelligence (AI) to users with ChatGPT and other generative AI technologies. Yet, many still labor with defining exactly what AI is and how it is transforming cybersecurity. In this session, we will define AI, the types of AI, and the various approaches - providing a framework for understanding the practical implications of AI within cybersecurity. At the end of the session, you will be able to identify the concepts that are foundational to AI and major high-level approaches to machine learning and deep learning and how it... ...read more...

                      Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) and the rest of the DoD rules for safeguarding Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) provide a stout framework for combating cyber threats.  The question is at what cost and what will they actually accomplish? DoD admits that just the CMMC assessment and certification requirements impose recurring contractor investments from hundreds of thousands to millions of dollars depending on contractor size.  In addition, there is no meaningful limit to what data can be covered, how it will be managed or how the requirements can be tailored.  The cost problem is further amplified with mandatory flow downs and broad-based... ...read more...

                        AI is rapidly transforming mental health care, with veterans at the forefront. Since the early days of AI in psychology (1990s), researchers have explored its potential to support traditional therapies. This session will delve into AI use for veterans' mental health, examining both benefits and risks. We'll explore the timeline, from early AI chatbots offering basic support (1990s-2010s) to today's sophisticated models that analyze data to identify mental health issues like depression and PTSD. These models can flag veterans who need intervention before symptoms worsen. The session will then discuss exciting possibilities, such as 24/7 access to self-management tools and anonymous... ...read more...

Implementing risk management is a key to good decision-making and is essential for strong cybersecurity. Due to dependence on information technology, leaders in most fields need to understand cybersecurity vulnerabilities and mitigation options. Join our panel of ROTC cadets as they share their opinions on application of theoretical lessons in cybersecurity to risk management challenges and opportunities they might face in the military. Questions for the panelists will include: What lessons, either academic or experiential, have been most helpful in forming your concept of cybersecurity risk management? What do you think is the nation’s greatest cybersecurity threat? Which concepts do you... ...read more...
